Dryer gets really hot and shuts off mid cycle when set on high. Will restart when cools off. Will complete a full cycle when set on low. Any ideas?? Same result when not hooked to wall vent. Air blows strong out of back of unit.

ANSWER Hello KDB. Check and make sure the blower wheel is not clogged or the duct inside the dryer. If not, it may have a bad motor that is over heating and the motor will need to be replaced on the unit. This is a sign of either a venting issue or a motor issue.
